The new ClampStar Repair Unit quickly and easily corrects damaged conductor, great for gunshot or other types of damage on conductors sized from 2/0 – 1780 kcmil. After brushing the conductor, ClampStar is placed over the damaged area and is installed with only a nut driver.
ClampStar, an engineered mechanical shunt is the industry’s only permanent, life extension solution for virtually all overhead conductors of any voltage class. ClampStar easily installs with NO power interruption and no mechanical grips, come-alongs, jumper cables or cutters are needed. ClampStar exceeds ANSI C119.4 Class AA, extra heavy duty and restores both electrical and mechanical integrity on weathered conductors.
Additional ClampStar models are also available for correcting failing splices, deadends and suspension clamps on transmission and distribution conductors from #6 AWG thru 2750 kcmil AAC and 2550 ACSR. And ClampStars are also available to handle Overhead Shield Wire and OPGW. ClampStar also increases ampacity allowing for system up-rates to help meet NERC's maximum conductor operating temperature requirements.
